Charlie Strong article on

Nice take on Charlie from a writer who's known him awhile, Andy Staples.

SI link: After offseason of change, Charlie Strong and Texas ready for results

"...Except that’s not exactly what Strong said, and it isn’t entirely why Strong made the change.

"Strong... knows that an extended saunter back to the training complex has potential benefits. For example, if offensive coordinator and line coach Joe Wickline chewed out a guard for placing his head on the wrong side on a zone play, Wickline can calmly -- outside the moment -- discuss the issue and reinforce the lesson on the walk back. Or maybe coach and player will just talk about their families. This humanizes each to the other."

Be excellent to each other.
